Well, I did it.
I cleaned my car.
What? You don't think this is noteworthy? Have I mentioned that I haven't cleaned my car in....well, let's just say that I can't remember the last time I cleaned it.
But for some reason today, when I got in it I was disgusted. Apparently, when I get into my car the only thing I can see is whatever is right outside the windshield in front of me.
So, I made up my mind...that TODAY would be the day that it was cleaned. Of course, as it's not the weekend, this meant that after a full day at work, on a MONDAY, I might add, I would have to come home and actually DO something other than put on my pj's and surf the 'Net. The horror.
But I did it. I gathered all my cleaning supplies, the unwieldy Shop-Vac and dove in. It took me over an hour to just dust, vacuum and sanitize all the surfaces in that car. AN HOUR and it's just a mid-size (if you want to be generous) sedan! Needless to say, I earned that glass of wine or two after I was done.
The car is officially clean and I am seriously surprised that I haven't yet contracted MRSA or some equally horrifying disease from the disgusting amount of crud I'd been driving around in for however long it's been. I count myself fortunate.
As they say, God looks out for fools, drunks, small children and, apparently, people with filthy cars.
